Interset and Accuvant to Present Security Webinar: Is Behavioral Analytics the Solution to Detecting Advanced Threats?

Ottawa, ON, Dec. 9, 2014 – Behavioral analytics is a relatively new area of security technology designed to illuminate patterns and relationships created by employee actions and business processes. By aggregating and analyzing these patterns across an organization, behavioral analytics software can filter out extraneous data and deliver an accurate and prioritized view of true enterprise threats.

James Robinson, Security Director, Office of the CISO at Accuvant, and Stephan Jou, CTO and Data Scientist at Interset, will discuss how behavioral analytics detects advanced threats including insider attacks and compromised machine or use account based attacks, and how organizations can apply this technology in security programs. Robinson is an expert on the insider and compromised account threat and supports Accuvant’s CISO security strategy program. Jou is an analytics expert previously with IBM who designed Interset’s award-winning analytics engine.

Attendees will learn how to:
• Detect and stop insider attacks while they are happening
• Surface employees and leavers who are stealing corporate data
• Use behavioral analytics to reduce the noise in existing security tools
• Best leverage people, process and technology to address insider threat
• Successfully adopting new technologies in existing security programs

Interset’s approach to security behavior analytics uses multi-level, predictive mathematical models and unsupervised machine learning integrated across a big data network. This approach reduces noise and removes false positives, while increasing accuracy and timeliness of threat detection. Interset was recently named a winner of the annual Security Innovation Network™ (SINET) 16 Innovators competition sponsored by the Dept. of Homeland Security.
